HOW TO MAKE THIS SPINACH ARTICHOKE GRILLED CHEESE RECIPE

PRO TIP:

The best way to get your cheese to melt is if you let it sit out for 15 to 20 minutes before you start making these.

STEP ONE: Using a medium bowl, add the spinach, artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, onion powder, kosher salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined. 

PRO TIP:

You can make the spinach artichoke filling a day in advance.

STEP TWO: Butter 1 side of each slice of bread. Set it aside.

STEP THREE: Preheat a 10 to 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.

PRO TIP:

This would also be fantastic grilled in a panini press instead of on the stovetop.

STEP FOUR: Spread ¼ to ⅓ cup of the spinach-artichoke mixture over the unbuttered side of 4 of the 8 bread slices.

STEP FIVE: Place 2 slices of the buttered bread with the spinach mixture, butter side down, in the heated skillet. Top with 2 slices of plain buttered bread, with the butter side up.

STEP SIX: Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown, flip and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, or until this side is golden.

PRO TIP:

As you cook your sandwich, gently press it down.

STEP SEVEN: Repeat for the remaining 2 sandwiches.

STEP EIGHT: Slice the sandwiches in half and serve immediately.
